The new year is off to a swell start with Joan Crawford being Turner Classic Movies' Star of the Month! Beginning on the evening of January 2nd, TCM will air 62 films featuring the glorious Ms. Crawford all throughout the month. Preview the line-up here 'cause you especially do not want to miss the Pre-code gems!
I actually happened upon the above Crawford cameo in the star-studded musical comedy, It's A Great Feeling, during Doris Day's Summer Under the Stars tribute in August. The joke, of course, is obvious to all who've seen this scene in Mildred Pierce or is familiar with the #TCMParty catchphrase, "just got Crawford'd."
As funny as the threesome are in the skit, I had more fun seeing Joan play her hardcore knitter self by knitting a sock on double-pointed needles! Seriously, put this down on your New Year's Resolutions list right now: become a bad-ass double-pointed needle knitter! It's way cool, like you're defying gravity or something. You have, like, this knitted creation just suspended in air. And then there's that added adrenaline rush with the risk of poking your eye out. Now go on a read this old post with helpful links to get you started before I slap you silly!
Happy New Year, Everyone! What are some of your crafty resolutions for 2014?
